    First time taking our son to Disney. We would like to stay in the park since we are only there 4 nights. Any suggestions? He is two years old :) thanks!


    I gather from your question that you are asking for suggestions on what resort would be your best choice?

    Staying at a Disney resort can have a lot of benefits, including saving you a lot of time in transportation to and from the parks. Having said that, with a 2-year old, you will definitely be spending more time at the Magic Kingdom, so getting a resort convenient to that should be your primary deciding factor. My suggestions to you, based on different price ranges, are as follows;

    • Higher cost Deluxe: Polynesian Resort (monorail ride to the Magic Kingdom)
    • Lower cost Deluxe: Wilderness Lodge (boat ride to the Magic Kingdom)
    • Moderate: Coronado Springs
    • Value: Art of Animation

    I took my Annie there when she was 2 for her first trip, so if you have any other questions I can help with, please let me know! 

    Have a magical vacation!
